I should have read the entire e-mail before responding. Having just been inducted as a life member, I can tell you, you will make may friends in ASCE that have different experiences. Use those contacts for help. They will, in turn, use you for help.
Also, At our office, we have a CADD drafter, that is all she does. She has wonderful design skills for grading, water and structures, but her main focus is the use of ACADD. She is a wealth of knowledge when I get in trouble.
I am a pretty good designer, but I can't draw a straight line with a straight edge on each side of a pencil.

Software designers sell courses ion their products. But they come with a price. You might consider signing up for them, but also keep applying for work. Your experience with Solidworks or NX 5 has to count for something, even without the ACADD experience. I started working before Autocadd and am still not very experienced, I'm still employed because I have experience as an engineer, not a CADD operator.
I am a firm believer that learning computer software is much easier than learning to think like and engineer.

Some universities including ivy league schools like Yale and MIT put entire courses on YouTube for free. You don't get any kind of certificate, but there is a lot of good knowledge out there for free.
